Trotters take center stage on Friday night at the Meadowlands with the talented B Yoyo heading up the featured sixth race, a conditioned trot for a purse of $18,000.
B Yoyo is maturing into a top class trotter for trainer Richie Johnson and since the calendar turned to 2017 has three on-the-board finishes in four starts. At his best, B Yoyo packs a powerful closing kick when raced off cover as evidenced in last week's winning effort. Driver Joe Bongiorno afforded the gelded son of Striking Sahbra a perfectly patient steer and B Yoyo responded, storming by rivals with a 28.1 end to the 1:53.3 mile.
It's a slight move up in class this week and B Yoyo must deal with the always dangerous duo of Muscle Diamond and Crosby's Clam Bake to bring the top prize home to owners Bill Lambos and Dionisios Liberatos. (Meadowlands)
